MINISTRIES & MISSIONS

 
 
Your Outreach Committee identifies a Ministry to focus on each month. They provide information through the web, newsletter and bulletins about how you can participate. To donate, please place your contribution (make your check out to Anoka UMC) in an envelope found in the pews, or in your offering envelope, and mark it with the name of this month’s ministry. 
 

Good Samaritan Fund

Helping Our Community All Year Long!

 
We maintain a Good Samaritan Fund for exactly that: helping those who have great needs, whether it is a church member or someone in the community. When they come to the church, this fund enables us to respond to those needs. We use a portion of the funds to keep groceries for emergencies to tide someone over until they can get to a food shelf or other help. 
 
This is available to anyone. This mission directly helps our friends and neighbors in the community. We hope you will support the effort this month to replenish this fund. In 2017 we handed out 81 food bags of groceries and helped in assistance in the amount of $3200. 
 
Thank you for your continued support!
